The Patriots have signed 29-year old safety Vincent Fuller. Fuller played in 1 game for the Lions earlier this year but he didn’t have any tackles. Fuller has now played in 74 games in his first six years in the NFL and he has 163 tackles, 16 passes defensed, 6 interceptions (4 returned for a TD), 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery and 7 tackles for a loss. The Patriots need help at the back end of the D and Fuller has been a playmaker in the past, so he could be just what the doctor ordered.
